in the past by al qaeda, used by the taliban. but it is also a technology sadly you can find on the internet and i'm being told by several officials, some of the other correspondents as well, that there is zero, zero evidence as yet any intelligence evidence of any international or foreign terrorist involvement, so they're obviously thinking about that, investigating that. but there is no evidence of that as yet. at the moment i'm told there is a frantic, that is the word used by a boston police source review of all the video evidence and everything else trying to come in. as of just a couple hours ago in a conversation with the boston police source i was told as of yet in that review nothing, no evidence yet. nothing on the video review so far that shows any suspicious people arriving at a scene seeming to put something down and going away. that is what they're looking for right now. and so you have this just frantic investigation and as time passes experts in this tell you, you know, if somebody left a clear signature, often you get that within 24 hours or so. that is the nervousness you f
be a loan wolf or a group of individuals. around a year ago, al qaeda released an article in their online english magazine calling for attacks on sporting venues and crowded places. that doesn't mean that al qaeda was responsible. >> it's patriots date and tax day and lots of potential reasons -- >> and the anniversary of the bin laden raid. >> that would lend more to a bin laden thing but the others could lend toits a domestic terror attack theory. what will the fbi be really pushing now? >> absolutely. and the forensics will be crucial as well. if they have recovered an intact device, lit be much, much easier. if they do the forensics and they see it has a signature related to a track record of a group or whatever, they can gain a huge amount of clues on who may have been responsible. >> it's clearly an appalling act of terror by somebody. >> i wouldn't want to weigh in on that. >> cautious approach is probably the right approach. >> the fbi have taken full control of the investigation. if it looks like it may be an islamic fundamentalist group, does the cia come in with them? >> they w
, and these pressure cookers are a tactic, technique that is used by the taliban and by al qaeda in afghanistan. very effective weapons, they try to pick the pressure cookers up wherever they can, and they use them to make their ieds. and quite concerned that this is a ttt as they call it in the military that -- >> ttp. >> tactic, technique and -- but the ttp -- procedures -- things of the taliban that we're now seeing here. that doesn't mean it was the talib taliban. other people can read about this. >> we also heard these are relatively crude devices that are available on the internet, people can kind of learn how to make them. >> you can learn how to make them, which is -- which doesn't rule out an international terrorist, certainly don't need to bring the materials to make this weapon into the country. they're here. you can make it right here. they are crude. that's what the taliban makes, crude ieds. but, again, you know, in the past, people have rushed to judgment as to who was behind attacks like this. so i think we'll let the evidence play out. but it certainly is an indicator of a potential
that this is a relatively crude device. a device used by al qaeda, used by the taliban in the past, but, i want to stress this, from all of our sources, from all of our reporters, producers and koeshts, zero evidence, zero evidence of any communications, any intelligence suggesting a foreign terrorist involvement as yet. and even though this has been used, this type of technology has been used by al qaeda and taliban in the past, it is also sadly in this age of the internet a technology you can go online and essentially find a how-to to build a bomb like this. no one has ruled out domestic terrorism, or this being a single lone wolf bomber, perhaps someone with help. right now, they say those are among the many, many questions. >> and it's significant also that no one has claimed responsibility. there's almost a thunderous silence, if you will. that speaks volumes to a lot of these investigators. >> if you look past backwards, past terrorist attacks, obviously if it's al qaeda, if it's al qaeda an the arabian peninsula, even a domestic political group trying to make a point, often there's a claim of resp
used by say al qaeda or other groups. that may start to provide some answers. >> i heard you say earlier the fact these weren't big devices would perhaps suggest it isn't an al qaeda operation, that they would go for a more dramatic impact with the devices. also, there are these ball bearings we now know have been used. any significance to that? >> well, you know, piers, here in new york, we had this disrupted subway plot which was, in fact, al qaeda related and it involved backpack bombs. these explosions, while horrific and have caused horrific injury, what we're hearing from law enforcement sources are that they were not terribly sophisticated. they were small. it would have been much worse if it was a higher explosive like c-4 or plastic explosive so you just can't really tell yet. we don't know enough about the forensics to know was this a domestic terrorist group. it's possible, right. we've seen things like oklahoma city, that tragedy. so it could be a domestic group. law enforcement has been careful to say that's the question they can't answer tonight, domestic or foreign
of collaboration with al qaeda, al qaeda affiliates. this is a continuing concern. again, we're not saying that it was a foreign terrorist group. but this is the backdrop, again, which the fbi is working on this situation right now. john? >> all right. barbara starr at the pentagon. thank you. >>> coming up, there is still so many questions this morning in the aftermath of yesterday's attack here at the boston marathon. we will continue to bring you the latest information as it comes in. you are watching a special edition of "early start." stay with us. the one thing that 99 percent of investors can expect to find in their portfolio, is unexpected risk. bny mellon has the vision and experience to help. we look at the full picture... to uncover risk, find opportunities, and create a plan that's best suited for you. bny mellon. before i do any projects on on my own.st at angie's list, you'll find reviews written by people just like you. i love my contractor, and i am so thankful to angie's list for bringing us together. angie's list -- reviews you can trust. olay ultra moisture body wash can
blast when the responders arrived to cause maximum amount of injury. it is a hallmark of al qaeda. >> i don't think we should underplay, underestimate -- everyone is saying this is really crude. usually someone as organized as quite, it's a bit more sophisticated than this. usually home grown terrorists are crude in this manner. >> as we said, lots of questions, not too many answers. when we come back we will go to the scene of the hospital for the latest news on the bombing and its victims. [ male announcer ] you are a business pro. omnipotent of opportunity. you know how to mix business... with business. and you...rent from national. because only national lets you choose any car in the aisle. and go. you can even take a full-size or above. and still pay the mid-size price. i could get used to this. [ male announcer ] yes, you could business pro. yes, you could. go national. go like a pro. good afternoon. chase sapphire. (push button tone) this is stacy from springfield. oh whoa. hello? yes. i didn't realize i'd be talking to an actual person. you don't need to press "0," i'm here. rea
possibly of a foreign terrorist that has carried out attacks in war zones or in potential al qaeda attacks? does it match the signature of a home grown terrorist? these are the kinds of things they're starting to look at. we know that from the expertise that they've all assembled. it may take some time but this is what they're going to focus on at least in the coming days. john? >> reporter: you know, it sounds cliche, barbara, but no detail is too small because you don't know where that break might come from. we should also say there's news from pakistan this morning with the taliban. what's the taliban saying about this right now? >> exactly right. you know, this is the other thing we're going to going to look at. the pakistani taliban is claiming they didn't do t. let me read you a brief part of the statement that they put out. quote, wherever we find americans we will kill them, but we don't have any connection with the boston explosions. that coming from the ttp, the so-called pakistani taliban. what's so interesting about this is this group claims responsibility for the failed 2010 f
now as to the fundamental question, domestic or forren? >>> there's some reporting that al qaeda linked magazine "inspire" had techniques how to make a bomb matched this was done. anybody could have figured out how to do this. anything you have heard given you an indication of domestic versus foreign, inspiration or origination? >> personally, from the very beginning, i tended to lean toward domestic. i have been at international bombings overseas on several occasions running the investigation. i've been in the u.s. also running them. and what you have here is if your expertise is on middle east terrorism, every bombing tended to look like that, it has hallmarks of middle east terrorism. if your expertise is domestic, then it's domestic. it has the hallmarks of both and neither. you don't have a group claiming credit. but on the other hand, the material being used, especially roofing nails or carpenter nails used that's how the atlanta 1996 centennial park bombing was put together, a pipe bomb with food container with nails in it and one of the nails struck a woman and killed her
connection or link to al qaeda had been found in this attack, at least not yet. they have not named any suspect yet, the federal government, and no one has claimed responsibility. but the man hunt is on one assumes one of the most intense in our country's history. the news of the attack sent a shock wave through wall street yesterday. the dow suffered its biggest drop of the year. today the markets bounced back. optimism about housing and a pickup in hiring are credited for the surge. the traders began the day with a moment of silence for the victims in boston just before the opening bell. we'll have more on the marathon bombings in just a moment, but first we want to bring you some of today's other headlines. thousands of american airlines passengers are stuck at their gates thanks to a computer outage. the airline grounded flights across the country until 5:00 p.m. eastern while the system is being repaired. american airlines said the ground stop did not impact arrivals. passengers who want to change their reservations will not be charged the airline says. with very little fanfare, la
are asking me all day today oh, was it al qaeda, was it domestic terrorism. i think we should reserve judgment. i think the caution you're hearing from governor patrick and ed davis, the police commissioner, is about right. the who matters less now than that we're getting people to safety and they got people to safety quickly. >> tom fuentes, certainly the fact that there were multiple devices and seemingly coordinated, we don't know the means by which they were coordinated, but that is significant. that is though they might not be sophisticated devices, that at least shows a level of planning or sophistication in how this was carried out. >> well, that could be, anderson, but you could easily have one person drop one device in a trash container at one location, walk 100 yards to the other location, drop one in there, and then maybe remotely detonate it by cell phone or have some type of a timer or delayed fuse or some way to detonate it, where they could both go off together but not require multiple people to deliver them. so this could be as few as one person or one, two, five peopl
and indents like it, if your experience and expertise is middle east terrorism it has hallmarks of al qaeda or middle east. if experience is domestic groups and bombings that occurred here it has hallmarks of domestic terrorists like eric rudolphs in the 1996 summer olympic bombings. i've been to both. i've run bomb scenes in iraq and u.s. it has hallmarks of domestic and international. you can see either side of that. the roofing nails is a -- the carpenter nails, as they've been described by the doctor, is significant. in the atlanta bombing in 1996, roofing nails were put in a plastic food container put next to the pipe bomb in a knapsack, when it exploded roofing nails went out and the one woman that was killed by the bomb itself was hit with a roofing nail and it killed her. the other fatalities and awe journalist who had a heart attack running to the scene. the woman was killed by a roofing nail. the fbi was able to track those nails to where they were manufactured, what was significant was that there was a defect at the plant so that it made a certain run of nails unique which were t
all domestic people, but yet they obviously had a foreign affiliation. al qaeda realizes it's very difficult for them to get people in the country. they have been using people already here. we also have people self-motivated over the internet. they become self-radicalized or could be someone from a white supremacist group. they, again, entirely domestic or it could be a combination of the two, as said, with islamic jihadist, both domestic and having a foreign connection. all of this is being looked at, but certainly between now and 9/11, now, people know exactly what to do. there is a protocol in place, what measures to take, and move quickly and effectively and work very well together. totalsynchronization. >> we don't know who did this. we suspect we will know at some point. peter king, congressman peter king, thank you for sharing your expertise with us. we appreciate it. >> thank you. >> ahead on "starting point" we continue to follow this unfolding investigation of this terror attack in boston, we are tracking other developing stories. we'll talk about how the stock markets ar
